Grammy Award-winning singer Amy Winehouse has taken a guilty plea and will accept a fine for illegal marijuana possession in Norway. The former “Back To Black” star dropped a previously filed appeal Tuesday in favor of paying a fine for illegal possession in 2007. Winehouse and her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, were arrested during a concert stop in the western city of Bergen in October 2007 on charges of possessing 7 grams (1/4-ounce) of marijuana. They were held overnight and released after paying fines of 3,000 kroner ($428). “After a careful review of the whole matter, they decided to drop the appeal,” attorney Ole Kvelstad said by telephone. He refused to give reasons for the decision to withdraw the appeal.Sources close to the case say Winehouse’s guilty plea may effect her ability to perform in the United States should she choose to do so in the future. Winehouse had been denied access to the United States in 2008, when she attempted to visit for the Grammy Awards.
